Tour Delayed by men who cry wolf – Yahoo! News
GRENOBLE, France (Reuters) – Tuesday’s 1Oth stage of the Tour de France started about 40 minutes late in the Alps after angry cattle farmers protested about attacks by wolves.
The stage was also shortened from 192.5km to 181km after the farmers made their protest in Grenoble, where the start was initially scheduled.
The riders then moved on and the start was given 11.5 km further away.
The farmers were protesting against recent wolf attacks against sheep and cattle.
